Plexus Announces Preliminary Fiscal First Quarter 2024 Results And Additional Share Repurchase Program

NEENAH, Wis.(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Plexus Corp. (NASDAQ: PLXS) announced that it will not meet its fiscal first quarter revenue guidance of $990 million to $1.03 billion, GAAP operating margin of 4.8% to 5.3% and GAAP EPS of $1.15 to $1.33, as issued October 25, 2023. As the fiscal first quarter progressed, the company experienced continued market-driven inventory corrections and incrementally weaker demand from the Healthcare/Lifesciences and Industrial market sectors. Plexus now expects to announce fiscal first quarter revenue of $980 to $985 million, GAAP operating margin of approximately 4.6% and GAAP diluted EPS of $1.02 to $1.06.

Todd Kelsey, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I remain confident in my expectations that, over the long-term, Plexus’ strategy will continue to deliver industry-leading revenue growth and superior returns for our shareholders. In the near term, Plexus is focused on continuing to deliver customer service excellence, tightly managing costs and generating cash. In support of our commitment to return any excess cash to shareholders, I am pleased to announce that our Board of Directors approved a new $50 million share repurchase program. We believe repurchasing our common stock at current market prices is an attractive use of our capital and creates an additional opportunity to create long-term shareholder value.”
